KCSE candidate dies in botched delivery moments after Wednesday paper
SEE ALSO :Two KCSE candidates go missingAtebe said the report indicates that the candidate had successfully done her Wednesday papers, and being a day scholar, left the school together with her colleagues. However, at night, she developed labour pains and was rushed to the nearby dispensary where she developed complications and died before she could be referred for more specialised treatment. “The report we have is a verbal one from the school management, and a comprehensive report will come later,” said Atebe. He said he had already dispatched a team from his office to visit the school to furnish him with a complete report, which would verify the preliminary report. Sources said the 18-year-old girl had not shown any signs of difficulties during the examination period and had intimated to her friends that her expected delivery date was due next week.
